Making the decision to pursue yoga teacher training is a challenging one. Even though this journey can be exciting and many people hear the call to take the next steps, the decision to become a yoga teacher can be intimidating, too.
For one thing, there are A LOT of yoga teacher training programs out there. I say this as a yoga professional who has built her own program, The Kaivalya Yoga Method, from the ground up. Long before that, however, I was in the same place many people reading this blog post have found themselves: Interested in yoga teacher training but unsure of where to start.
And while I can’t tell you absolutely everything you need to know about finding the right yoga teacher training program or what it’s like to actually step into the role of yoga teacher and spiritual leader, I can give a few tips and suggestions about what to keep in mind.
For one thing, those interested in yoga teacher training shouldn’t immediately select the first training program that they find. It’s important to do your research, compare programs, listen to what’s offered, and pay attention to the option that feels right to you.
